Hoping someone can help me. I posted a similar question a while ago, but there have been some developments.
Since the new year, I have had weird bowel movements on and off.
I have unformed (ie extremely soft but not watery) movements first thing in the morning. I only 'go' once a day. This lasts for a week or two and then everything suddenly reverts back to perfectly normal stools (firm, shaped). Everything will be fine for a few weeks, and then the soft stools will start again.
There is no pain, but there is urgency to go. I have been trying to think logically about this, and it doesn't really seem like an infection (which I would think of as being signalled more by diarrhea and that would either persist or gradually get better as opposed to spontaneously). I have been monitoring my diet, and nothing seems to make much difference.
I have been anxious / stressed recently, but surely if this was anxiety related, wouldn't the two always co-incide? The doctor didn't run any tests when I visited him, but said it could be anxiety.
Any help / input would be great.
